The webinar will be a dynamic, virtual conversation about ongoing efforts, including NARA’s, from across the country in utilizing the Department of Energy’s Energy Literacy Framework to address one of our nation’s’ biggest national challenges, energy illiteracy. Through rapid fire sessions you will hear about national, new media and localized efforts using e-books, experiential curriculum and best practices in energy education and learn about resources including the Women @ Energy series (www.energy.gov/womeninstem) to use in your classroom.
You will also be given the opportunity to engage in an online discussion by providing pre- and post-dialogue feedback. Energy Literacy: Essential Principles and Fundamental Concepts for Energy Education presents interdisciplinary energy concepts that, if understood and applied, will help individuals and communities make informed energy decisions.
